Killing Temptation

I have this problem which I know most of us do - temptation. Especially when it comes to "THINGS". The one thing I desire now is iPhone 6. Heck, that's not new.. duhhh.

Let me ask you, how do you actually kill a temptation? How do you make something not be as tempting as they are? Can you simply not give in after long time?

Mr. Fruitheart is also very interested in iPhone 6 Plus. We've been in and out of the store couple of times. But every time, we managed to NOT BUY it. Bravo to us.. for now.
And today we had this conversation about iPhone 6 again. Mr. Fruitheart has been into the Maxis website I do not know for how many times and looked at the plans they offered. It is obviously tempting he said, because he kept opening it. HAHA.

We made a deal which I know he is weak at it - seeing the money lessen. As agreed, we paid extra for our credit card and thank GOD.. we only have less than RM500 to pay for next month. I am still happy because we managed to cover all our expenses, paid our bills, add our emergency savings and still have unallocated money. Alhamdulillah. An achievement I am proud of my husband for managing our financial very well this time. HEHE.

It is just not about iPhone. There are other things I want. Ahh.. WANT vs NEEDS. Where are you good articles about managing your WANTS vs NEEDS when you need one??

P/S: We are still getting the iPhone 6 by the way, just not today. Heh.

ASTRO: Just Because of RM10.45

On last Thursday, we had an issue with our ASTRO. We reached home and as usual, kiddo switched on the TV and click on her fave channel. However, there was a message:

We apologise for the service interruption. To resume service please SMS: Astro RCO XXXXX(Smartcard number) and send to 66688. For customers in Brunei, please call 151. (TCI)

So I sent an SMS, and got a reply:
RM0.00 You are currently not eligible for this transaction. Please make payment immediately to enjoy full ASTRO services again. Thank you.

Our ASTRO has been barred?? Mr. Fruitheart checked our history payment and confirmed we had paid. So, I had to call ASTRO. I called the toll free line and since I'm using the ASTRO IPTV, I was being transferred to another line.

I asked the customer service representative to check and she told me our ASTRO account has an outstanding payment. I was like WHAT? Outstanding payment? How much? Oh no! Did Mr. Fruitheart paid to the wrong account? Because I had 2 under my name.


Confinement Packages / Pakej Berpantang

During my last pregnancy, I hired a confinement lady (CL) from Jemari tradisional to take care of me after I delivered my baby girl. This time around I have not decided yet where I will be staying during my confinement days and not sure if I will get the same CL from JT.

So, I have started to search for confinement lady / confinement packages / post natal packages / post natal care/ penjaga pantang / pakej pantang / pakej urut bersalin on the Internet. I found few that looks OK but some of the websites were not updated. I do not know if they're still on business.

So here are the lists:

Dilemma: Taska / Nursery for The Girls

We're back to square one. Scratching our head, thinking hard and have to make an important decision. My sister can no longer take care of my girls, she has accepted a job offer in KLIA2.

Definitely not going to hire another helper. I do not want face another headache, frustration and have stranger into our house. It would also cost us thousands of Ringgit again which we don't have. Now we're considering sending the girls to a childcare centre. Choosing a childcare centre is NOT easy. Reliable and registered are normally full.

I had done my research on the Internet, browsing the JKM website looking for registered taska / nursery. I called few places and they are no longer accepting new entry.

I had called this centre named Taska Umi Setia Kasih in Danau Kota. I prefer this taska since it is close to kiddo's transit house and school. It is also close to my in law's house. And it is just opposite the police station. Aha. There is a place for Arissa, but I have to wait fo…
